Part One

Command Default Key Function My Rating Link
Audio - Background Color Modulation Activates/Deactivates background color modulation for events/parts in the project window. Note: It seems that background color modulation doesn’t work with transparent events. It will make the event color solid and modulate it from there. 3 Event Display - Audio
Audio - Create Audio Images during Record Activates/Deactivates. When active, the audio images (waveforms in the events) are created as record runs. When inactive, during record the event remains blank, and when recording stops, it’s then that the images are constructed. 3 Record - Audio
Audio - Default Warping Algorithm Chooses the next available warping algorithm as the default. Note: This key command is a one way street. Once I reach the end, i.e. Standard - Solo, I don’t have a way to go back. 0 Editing - Audio
Audio - Enable Automatic Hitpoint Detection Activates/Deactivates automatic Hitpoint detection. Note: This command does not create Hitpoints itself, neither is it retroactive. This means, if you have Automatic Detection enabled and record an event, you will get Hitpoints. Now, if you give the command, the hitpoints will not dissapear for this event. It’s just they will not be auto-created for the next event that you record. (And of course when you record said next event, and give the command afterwards, the event will not have hitpoints automatically calculated for it.) 5 Editing - Audio
Audio - Interpolate Audio Waveforms Activates/Deactivates interpolation of audio waveforms. Note: This command interpolates sample values to form curves when you zoom in to one sample per pixel or less. Keep this in mind if it looks like this is command is doing nothing. 5 Event Display - Audio
Audio - On Processing Shared Clips Cycles through the options for what should be done when applying processing to shared clips. 5 Editing - Audio
Audio - Remove Regions/Hitpoints on all Offline Processes Activates/Deactivates removal of hitpoints and regions when offline processes are applied. 5 Editing - Audio
Audio - Show Event Volume Curves Always Activates/Deactivates visibility of the volume curve (envelope) for an audio event, even if deselected. When activated, the curve will always show. 7 Event Display - Audio
Audio - Show Hitpoints on Selected Events Activates/Deactivates visibility of the hitpoints when the event is selected. When activated, once you select an event you will see its hitpoints on it. 7 Event Display - Audio
Audio - Show Waveforms Activates/Deactivates visibility of waveforms for audio events. When activated, you see waveforms in events. When deactivated, events remain blank. 5 Event Display - Audio
Audio - Snap to Zero Crossing Activates/Deactivates Snap to Zero Crossing. Opinion: This command should be in Project or Edit. 8 Snap to Zero Crossing
Audio - Time Stretch Tool Algorithm Chooses the next available time stretch algorithm for the time stretch tool. Note: This key command is a one way street. Once I reach the end, i.e. Realtime, I don’t have a way to go back. 0 Editing - Audio
Audio - Treat Muted Audio Events like Deleted Activates/Deactivates. When activated: If you have 2 events overlapping, and the event on top is muted, the overlapped section of the event in the back will playback normally. When deactivated: If you have 2 events overlapping, and the event on top is muted, the overlapped section of the event in the back will not play back. Only the section of the event NOT covered by the muted event in the foreground will play. 3 Editing - Audio
Audio - Use Mouse Wheel for Event Volume and Fades Activates/Deactivates the use of the mouse wheel for modifying the event’s volume and fades. When enabled, event gain is modified in 1dB steps. Fades are adjusted in steps dictated by quantize, and grid type setting. 3 Editing - Audio
Audio - When Recording Wave Files Larger than 4 GB Switches between “Split Files” and “Use RF64 Format” options for what to do when recording files larger than 4 GB. 3 Record - Audio
Control Room - Auto Disable Talkback Mode Switches between 3 options for auto disabling the talkback mic. “No Auto Disable” (talkback mic always on), “In Record” (talkback mic off), “In Play and Record” (talkback mic off) 7 VST - Control Room
Control Room - Dim Cue during Talkback Activates/Deactivates dimming cues during talkback. Tip: Don’t forget to set Talk Dim Level! 7 VST - Control Room
Control Room - Exclusive Device Ports for Monitor Channels Activates/Deactivates the option for exclusive device ports for monitor channels. When activated, you cannot assign the same device output to two monitor channels. Each monitor channel will have to use a unique output. Opinion: I can’t see the point of this key command. I mean, you have to re-assign the connections when you toggle this command, don’t you? 0 VST - Control Room
Control Room - Show Control Room Volume in Transport Panel Activates/Deactivates controlling the big red knob of the “Main” section of the Control Room from the transport bar. When activated it’s the red knob being controlled, when deactivated it’s the stereo out. Tip: You may need to click and drag on the Audio Activity & Levels section of the Transport Bar for the control “triangle” to show. Note: Meters don’t follow the option change. They always measure the Stereo Out. 0 VST - Control Room
Control Room - Use Phones Channel as Preview Channel Activates/Deactivates using Phones as the preview channel. 10 VST - Control Room
Controls - Knob Mode Cycles between “Circular”, “Relative Circular”, and “Linear” modes for all knobs. 3 Editing - Controls

Editing - ‘Edit Solo’/‘Record in MIDI Editors’ Follow Focus Activates/Deactivates. When deactivated, pressing ‘Record in Editor’ will keep doing its job, regardless of focus. When activated, pressing ‘Record in Editor’ and then changing focus (by clicking in the project window for instance) will de-activate ‘record in editor’. 7 Editing
Editing - Auto Select Events under Cursor. Activates/Deactivates. When activated, positioning the cursor will automatically select all events under it. Notes: This is a duplicate entry. Also exists in Edit>Auto Select Events under Cursor. This command is a preference switch, issuing it will not select any events by itself. 4 Editing
Editing - Cycle Follows Range Selection Activates/Deactivates. When activated: If you make a range selection, the left and right locators will follow, and take positions on the left and on the right of the range, respectively. When deactivated: Range selections don’t affect the locators. Comment: An easy way to not care about whether a command would work with a range or a loop (cycle)? 8 Editing
Editing - Default Track Time Type Cycles between “Musical”, “Time Linear”, and “Follow Transport Main Display”. When you then create a new track, it will use the relevant Time Base. 5 Editing
Editing - Delete Overlaps Activates/Deactivates. When activated: Moving an audio event/midi part so that it overlaps another one will delete the overlapped area. Note: Overlapping that occurs due to recording does not delete overlaps immediately. You must move the overlapping event a little bit, and only then do the overlapped areas get deleted. 7 Editing
Editing - Display Warning before Deleting Non-Empty Tracks Activates/Deactivates. When activated, trying to delete any track that is not empty will display a warning, and require confirmation. Tip: We can always undo deletion of a track. 3 Editing
Editing - Lock Event Attributes Cycles through “Position”, “Size”, “Position + Size”, “Other”, “Position + Other”, “Size + Other”, “Position + Size + Other”. All these determine which attributes of the events will be locked when you lock them. Notes: Position: No moving the event. Size: No resizing the event. Other: Fade Handles, Event Gain 7 Editing
Editing - Parts Get Track Names Activates/Deactivates. When activated, parts on a track will automatically get the track’s name. 7 Editing
Editing - Quick Zoom Activates/Deactivates. When activated, the contents of parts/events are redrawn when you stop changing the zoom. Comment: I don’t notice much of a difference.(?) ? Editing
Editing - Select Track on Background Click Activates/Deactivates. When activated, clicking in empty space between parts/events of the same track will select the track. Tip: Using this preference together with “Editing - Track Selection Follows Event Selection” gives strong visual feedback of what’s what in the project window. 5 Editing
Editing - Track Selection Follows Event Selection Activates/Deactivates. When activated, selecting an event will also select the track it’s on. Tip: Using this preference together with “Editing - Select Track on Background Click” gives strong visual feedback of what’s what in the project window. 5 Editing
Editing - Use Up/Down Navigation Commands for Selecting Tracks only Activates/Deactivates. When activated, the Up/Down keys will be reserved for selecting tracks only. 3 Editing
Editors - Double-click Destination Toggles between “Double-click opens Editor in a Window” and “Double-click opens Editor in Lower Zone”. This is what will happen when you double click on a part/event. 7 Editors
Editors - Editor Content Follows Event Selection Activates/Deactivates. When activated: If you have an Editor open and select a different event, the editor will now show/edit the newly selected event. 4 Editors
Editors - Open Command Destination Toggles between “Open Editor Commands Open Editors in a Window” and “Open Editor Commands open Editors in Lower Zone”. This is what will happen when you give the “Open Editor” command. 7 Editors
Editors - Use Drum Editor when Drum Map is assigned Activates/Deactivates. When activated: Having a drum map assigned on track, if you give the “Open Editor” command, the drum Editor will open instead of the default. 3 Editors
Event Display - Hide Truncated Event Names Activates/Deactivates. When activated: Overly long part names (i.e. extending beyond the actual length of the part) will be hidden. 5 Event Display
Event Display - Show Event Names Activates/Deactivates. When deactivated, event/part names are hidden. 9 Event Display
Event Display - Show Overlaps Cycles between “Show Overlaps: Always”, “Show Overlaps: On Mouse Over” and “Show Overlaps: Never”. Comment: I can’t figure out how “On Mouse Over” works. I always see the overlaps (“zebra strip”), be it “On Mouse Over” or “Always”. I would expect that “On Mouse Over” I would need to, you know, move the mouse over the area in question for the “zebra strip” to show up. It seems it doesn’t work this way. Comments? 6 Event Display
Event Display - Smallest Track Height To Show Data Cycles between “Minimal”, “One Row”, “Two Rows”, “Three Rows”. This preference sets the minimum track height needed for events to show waveforms and MIDI parts to show lines/blocks/their default data. 6 Event Display
Event Display - Smallest Track Height to Show Name Cycles between “Minimal”, “One Row”, “Two Rows”, “Three Rows”. This preference sets the minimum track height needed for events/parts to show their names. 6 Event Display

MIDI - Insert Reset Events after Record Activates/Deactivates. When activated, a reset message is insert at the end of each recorded part, that resets controllers. 6 MIDI
MIDI - Legato Mode: Between Selected Notes Only Activates/Deactivates. Comment: I expected this command to connect to the Inspector>Editor>Length>Between Selected, but it is not connected. As this is a preference, it sort of makes sense, yet the same function mentioned above does not have a key command? I am not sure about how those two same(?) functions interact when one is on and the other is off. 6 Editing - MIDI
MIDI - MIDI Latency Mode Cycles between “Low”, “Normal”, “High”. 5 MIDI
MIDI - MIDI Thru Active Activates/Deactivates 7 MIDI
MIDI - Never Reset Chased Controllers Activates/Deactivates 5 MIDI

MIDI - Replace Recording in Editors Cycles through “None”, “All” and “Controller”. 7 Record - MIDI
MIDI - Reset on Stop Activates/Deactivates. 3 MIDI
MIDI - Select Controllers in Note Range: Use Extended Note Context Activates/Deactivates. When deactivated: If you have a CC extend beyond an event’s (note’s) duration and you select the event, only the CC nodes exactly matching the note’s duration will be selected. When activated, if the CC continues beyond the duration of the note, this extra data will be selected when you select the note. 4 Editing - MIDI
MIDI - Show Controllers Activates/Deactivates. When activated, the MIDI part in the project window will also depict CCs, and not only notes. 4 Event Display - MIDI
MIDI - Snap MIDI Parts to Bars Activates/Deactivates. When activated: When you are recording MIDI and you stop recording, the MIDI part created will be extended to start/end on the start of a bar. When deactivated: The MIDI part will have its start at where recording began, and its end at where recording stopped. 3 Record - MIDI
MIDI - Split MIDI Controllers Activates/Deactivates. When activated: If you split a MIDI part in the project window, this preference will make it so that the new part gets a CC data node at its start (if the value was different than 0). When deactivated: The controller will not get a data node at the start. (and playback oddities may ensue if you throw away the first part that had the CC value leading into the the second parts value.) Comment: I cannot imagine why someone would want to keep this preference deactivated. (?) 3 Editing - MIDI
MIDI - Split MIDI Events Activates/Deactivates. Similar as above. When activated, splitting a MIDI part in the project window at the middle of an event, will make it so the event is also split. When deactivated, splitting a MIDI part at the middle of an event, will make it so the event is “truncated” at the position of the split, and no new event is created in the part on the right. 3 Editing - MIDI
Plug-ins - Create MIDI Track when Loading VSTi Cycles between “Always ask to”, “Always”, “Do not”. Determines if a MIDI track will be created when you load a VSTi from the F11 menu. Comment: “Always ask” does not seem to work over here. Maybe a long time ago I was asked and pressed “Do not show again”? Who knows. 3 VST - Plug-ins
Plug-ins - Open Effect Editor after Loading It Activates/Deactivates. When activated, loading a plug-in will immediately bring up its window (GUI). Comment: If you are planning on creating 10 instances of “Mystic” for example, it’s a good idea to deactivate this preference before the batch creation. Even if you can close all plug-in windows with one key after the fact, it takes some time to actually load all those windows, so it’s better if you don’t let them load from the get-go, using this preference. 8 VST - Plug-ins
Plug-ins - Plug-in Editors “Always on Top” Activates/Deactivates. Per manual: “Always shows the control panels for effect plug-ins and VST instruments on top of other windows.” 8 VST - Plug-ins
Plug-ins - Suspend VST 3 plug-in processing when no audio signals are received Activates/Deactivates. The troublesome preference. Steinberg advised to keep this off until further notice (at the time of 10.5.20). When activated, VST 3 plug-ins suspend their processing (thus improving performance and reducing cpu load) when no audio is passing through. 3 VST - Plug-ins
Plug-ins - Synchronize Plug-in Program Selection to Track Selection Activates/Deactivates. When Activated: If you have a multitimbral instrument like Halion SE and you are feeding it from many midi tracks, navigating the project window, going from MIDI track 1 to MIDI track 2 will move the respective sound slots in the plug-in’s window. 3 VST - Plug-ins
Plug-ins - Warn before Removing Modified Effects Activates/Deactivates. Well explained. When activated, if you try to unload (throw away) a plug-in that you have previously tweaked, you will be warned and asked to confirm the removal of the plug-in. When deactivated, the plug-in will be removed swiftly without warning. 3 VST - Plug-ins
Project & MixConsole - Deep Track Folding Activates/Deactivates. When activated: Toggling selected track (From Project>Track Folding) will expand/reduce ALL subfolders contained in the selected folder track. When deactivated: Only the root folder will be toggled. 4 Editing - Project & MixConsole

Project & MixConsole - Scroll to Selected Track Activates/Deactivates. When activated: If you select a track in the project window, the MixConsole will scroll so that the selected channel is visible. Likewise, selecting a channel in the MixConsole will cause the project to scroll so that the selected track is visible. 3 Editing - Project & MixConsole
Project & MixConsole - Select Channel/Track on Edit Settings Activates/Deactivates. When activated: When you click on the “e” button on a track/channel, it will be selected. 3 Editing - Project & MixConsole

Tools - Show Toolbox on Right-Click Activates/Deactivates. When activated, right clicking will bring up the toolbox. When deactivated, it will bring up the “regular” right click menu, which has the tools one level deep, but also more contextual functions. Comment: An infamous preference, due to the fact that the right click menu available now has seen some pruning, and users want the removed functions back. 3 Editing - Tools
Tools - Show Vertical Cross-Hair Cursor Line “Changes”", does not inform of state. Well, when activated, the draw, split and line tools will get a vertical line, forming a crosshair at the exact position of the mouse cursor’s edge. 3 Editing - Tools
Tools - Zoom Tool Standard Mode: Horizontal Zooming Only Activates/Deactivates. When activated, using the Zoom Tool will only allow Horizontal Zooming. 3 Editing - Tools
Track & MixConsole Channel Colors - Auto Track/Channel Color Mode Cycles between “Use Track’s Default Color”, “Use Previous Track Color”, “Use Previous Track Color +1”, “Use Last Applied Color”, “Use Random Track Color”. All these determine what color the next created track shall be. 6 User Interface

Transport - Locate when Clicked in Empty Space Activates/Deactivates. When activated, clicking in empty space in the project window the move the cursor to the click’s position. Comment: People are asking for this feature to be extended to the MIDI editors. 3 Transport
Transport - Playback Toggle Triggers Local Preview Per manual: Allows you to use Space on your keyboard to start/stop local playback of the selected file in the Sample Editor or the Pool. When the Sample Editor is not open or when there is no audio file selected in the Pool, Space still toggles the global project playback. 3 Transport
Transport - Return to Start Position on Stop Activates/Deactivates. When activated, pressing stop will return the cursor to where it was when start was pressed to initiate playback. 3 Transport
Transport - Show Timecode Subframes Activates/Deactivates. Self-explanatory. When activated, subframes will show too for timecode. (It goes without saying that a ruler must show timecode for this to work.) 3 Transport
Transport - Stop Playback while Winding Activates/Deactivates. Self-explanatory. When activated, if you press rewind or forward while the project is playing, stop will be pressed, and when you finish winding you’ll need to press play again. When deactivated, you can wind while the project is playing, and once you cease winding, playback will resume. 3 Transport
Transport - Zoom while Locating in Time Scale Activates/Deactivates. Self-explanatory. When activated, clicking and dragging up/down on the ruler will zoom out/in respectively. 3 Transport
